Cladribine

So many ask does the treatment work, and how are folks getting on after taking it? We’ll I’m a year into taking it and due my second dose in August but I’ve had a review today and the results of my scan from April. My last MRI on Feb last year showed 2 lesions on my brain which I figured because of my relapse now this one showed one new one but it was inactive and healed so to speak. Nurse has read this could’ve have been from before I started as I haven’t felt any relapse symptoms, so in all honesty she says the consultant has said this is a good sign and my MS is inactive for now. I feel good, other than feeling tired from time to time but I’ll take that good news with a whole of kick my ass MS!!

Thank you @stumbler ☺️. I think it’s my positive attitude that drives and helps me deal with it all. I know that it’s not gonna be β˜€ and 🌈 all the time and I have my off days or week sometimes but there’s no point in worrying about the what ifs when they aren’t here yet!

Carpe Diem!

@mmhhpp I’m sorry to hear that, I guess until I take my second year, I won’t actually know if its worked or not. Fingerscrossed because the idea of taking anything stronger scares the crap outta me. Did you have a relapse or something?

Thanks hun @nutshell88 and as long as you’re feeling ok it doesn’t matter how many lesions you have right?! I’ve read so many posts that state they have loads of lesions but they feel fine where others that have a a few are a lot worse off. Fingerscrossed the Tec works for you chick 😊.
